9 Meat Related Novelties As Ridiculous as Lady Gaga’s Getup
About a month ago, lady Gaga caused a ruckus at the Video Music Awards by wearing an outfit made of actual meat dangling off of her like, well, slabs of meat. She tried to explain that her meat outfit was worn to protest the lack of support for gays in the military. I am not sure how you equate the two, but whatever, I don’t really understand anything she does.
Hilariously, butchers in New Jersey actually came out with a statement warning people not to copy Lady Gaga by wearing actual meat products for Halloween, since the idea is all the rage this year. Besides the obvious reason to refrain from wearing meats (it’s GROSS!) the butchers admitted that the connective tissue may be difficult to sew. They also seemed concerned that there is no insulating component to cold cuts, and you might find yourself a bit chilly.
Sadly, they did not mention that you are a walking invitation for a pit bull attack. Incidentally, if some jackass does wear meat on Halloween despite these warnings, they deserve to be mauled, and to be placed as a frontrunner for the Darwin Awards this year.
Here are 10 other meat related things you might find interesting.

You know they would be super impressed and probably give you free shit. (Did you really buy that? They would think you are the biggest tool ever, and would make fun of you behind your back.)
